Long Description:
Little archaeological evidence is still visible today of El Cedral's past glory because much of the temple was destroyed by conquistadors. By the turn of the last century, the site was uninhabited. However, at one time, this quaint village and ruins comprised the largest settlement in Cozumel.

It was here that people worshipped and placed offerings for the gods before the new settlers eventually built a church at the site. It is said to be the oldest Mayan structure on the island.

You can get there by taking the main highway south from San Miguel to a large arched entry. There are several craft shops with a variety of Mexican souvenirs. Admission is free.
